The Cannon Beach Tourism and Arts Commission will soon be accepting applications for funding efforts to increase tourism to Cannon Beach in the upcoming shoulder and winter seasons.
The commission seeks ideas for a promotion or event that would contribute to the arts, would bring in tourists traveling more than 50 miles for either day trips or overnight stays and would benefit the local economy. Grants can be used for expenses like personnel, special events, signage, attractions, promotional materials and advertising. Past events and activities funded by the Tourism and Arts Commission include the Cannon Beach History Center Cottage and Garden Tour, Get Lit at the Beach, Cannon Beach Arts Association juried shows and Coaster Theatre special events.
Applications are due by 5 p.m., May 2, and awards are made in July.
For information on the guidelines, procedures and applications for funds, contact Colleen Riggs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-436-8052. The application package is available at www.ci.cannon-beach.or.us or in a hard copy form at City Hall.
